The deer are eating my shrubs.

Your best bet is to make the shrubs unpalatable for the deer. You can buy hot pepper oil at the pet store, which can be sprayed on your shrubs, or make your own by soaking peppers in water for a few days. Be sure not to get any in your eyes, and reapply after it rains.

You can buy deer repellent. Lots of times they will still eat your shrubs though. If you have a fence, build it taller and or electrocute it. Deer are very persistant and really are not that scared of things so its difficult to get them to leave when they find a good eating place. Remember this was their home first.

There is a concoction made up of red cayenne, jalapeno, and habanero peppers. Run 3 of each through a blender, mix with water and spray on the plants.

It might seem a little harsh, but it definitely works with cats. You can make a spray out of cayenne pepper/soap/water. Spray on shrubs.. Deer will never eat them again.
